Industry Definition and Segmentation

Fluid milk contains healthy riboflavin and water-soluble vitamins. It is also high in nutrient content like Carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, minerals, and minerals. Because it is processed by companies to make drinks like low-fat, reduced-fat, and flavoured milk, fluid milk can be labelled beverage milk. The Fluid Milk industry report comprises segments by Type (Whole, Reduced Fat, Low Fat, Fat-Free, Organic, Others), Packaging Material (Paper, Plastic, Glass, Others), Distribution Channel (Supermarkets and Hypermarkets, Convenience Stores, Specialty Food Stores, Online Retail, Others) and Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and Africa, and South America).

The Asia Pacific Region is Driving the Growth of the Industry

The Asia Pacific holds the largest share in the industry as fluid milk is an essential diet element in emerging countries such as India and China. Furthermore, Growing food production facilities in Asian nations and the presence of a large vegetarian population who consume milk have contributed to this increase. Factors like population increase, rising global health awareness, and rising disposable incomes boost sales in the sector.

The growing health consciousness is driving the industry among consumers. The worldwide demand for milk has increased because of increased exposure to a wider range of milk products. Furthermore, a market leader in developing milk variants enriched with vitamins A and D to lower rickets' prevalence in newborns and adults. Furthermore, in emerging nations, factors like population expansion and rising disposable incomes further aid the market growth.

However, due to high costs and tough competition from other beverages, the market will likely witness disruption.

Best Procurement Practices

The global Fluid Milk industry report by Procurement Resource gives an in-depth analysis of the best buying practices followed by major global Fluid Milk regions across the globe, such as engagement models, contract terms, and buyer and supplier negotiation levers, among others.

Category Management Studies

Fluid milk for direct consumption is made by heating milk to at least 72°C for 15 seconds in combination with clean packaging; at temperatures higher than 100°C for a few seconds (ultra-pasteurised milk); or a temperature of 135–145°C for a few seconds (UHT milk) in combination with aseptic packaging. Pasteurised milk has a shelf life of 7–10 days if there is no post-pasteurisation contamination. Depending on the processing design, pasteurisation may be paired with bactofugation or microfiltration for a shelf-life extension. The surviving microbiota and storage factors such as temperature, oxygen, and light have an equal impact on the quality of pasteurised milk. Following that, fluid milk is fortified with vitamins to increase the nutritious value of the milk, particularly vitamin D and vitamin A.

Developments in the Product, Further Propelling the Procurement of Fluid Milk

The industry is being propelled by the employment of the product in various value-added products, such as ice pumpkin, condensed milk, infant formula, meat, chocolate, cheese, yoghurt, sauces, confectionery, and chocolates. In addition, A2 lactose-reduced, lactose-free, and acidophilus varieties are also being offered to suit consumers' unique nutritional demands. Manufacturers are utilising modern procedures like ultra-pasteurisation and aseptic treatment to increase milk's shelf life and allow it to be stored at ambient temperature. As a result, the fluid milk market is expanding. Also, the increase of Supermarket/Hypermarket outlets around the globe, particularly in developed and emerging countries, is further boosting sales in the sector.

The regional markets for the industry can be divided into North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and the Asia Pacific.
